Camden’s consultation proposes to install segregated cycle lanes on Gray’s Inn Road between Harrison Street and High Holborn and to provide safe junctions at the Sidmouth – Ampton and the Calthorpe – Guilford intersections.
Please show Camden your support for this new route by following this link and filling in the online Questionnaire. The deadline is 6th December 2019. It will take you about 5 minutes to reply to the six questions:
Q5: about the cycle lanes;
Q6: about junction improvements;
Q7: pedestrian improvements – continuous footways at side roads;
Q8: reduce the number of bus stops from 12 to 8;
Q9: parking and loading moving to side streets;
Q10: your overall feeling
For each of the questions, we encourage you to select the first option (e.g. “I agree with the proposal” or”I strongly agree with the proposal”)
The consultation description and drawing is here:
The consultation documents include a pair of 5-minute videos providing visual simulations of how the proposals will work at AM and PM peak times. Watching these videos is probably the best way to understand what’s being proposed. Both of them start at the Guilford Street/Calthorpe Street junction and then move on to the Sidmouth Street/Ampton Street junction.
You can observe all the details as to how the junctions work. E.g. here are some things to look out for:
- Both junctions provide an all green stage for pedestrians
- At Guilford Street/Calthorpe Street, on Grays Inn Road cycles go first in their own separate stage and can turn left, right or go straight ahead, while on Guilford Street and Calthorpe Street cycles have mandatory lead-in lanes to ASLs (cycle boxes).
- As the view moves north we see how cycles pass the Cycle Hire Station and then bypass the bus stop on the inside. The PM peak video shows the big queue of motors behind the bus and that the bus gets to the next signals first.
- At Sidmouth Street/Ampton Street, east-west cycle have their own separate signal stage and can turn left, right or go straight ahead, whereas on Grays Inn Road cycles move into ASLs and are provided with two-stage right turns.
